Parents play an important role in empowering children to take care of their minds, bodies, and the people around them, which builds a foundation for lifelong learning. Here are a few tips:

• Achoo! Cough and sneeze, elbow please! Encourage students to cover a sneeze or a cough to stop the spread of germs.

• Not feeling well for school like fever or vomiting? It is recommended that your child stay home until temperature is normal (98.6 degrees Fahrenheit) for 24 hours and vomiting has stopped for 24 hours.

• Lice Prevention: Head lice is a major nuisance that affects millions of school-aged children worldwide. Check out below Head Lice Prevention & Lice Comb Out Tutorial for tips to prevent lice and help control infestations. Anyone with evidence of an active lice infestation should be treated. Please also notify the classroom teacher and nurse so that they may inform other parents in the class and those parents may take preventive measures with their families.
